I recently took but unfortunately failed the PMP exam, but I trying to retake it soon since i didn't miss it by much. I scored a above target, above target, needs improvement, below target, and below target, respectively.

My question is do I have to reschedule before March 26 to take my exam under the 5th edition, or since i was been registered before the change will I be grandfathered into the 5th edition test. I don't want to run the risk of scheduling right after and take the test under the 6th edition knowledge areas.

Also does anyone have any advice on what they did to prepare for a retest?

Anything helps! Thanks in advance

Hmm I thought that grade would have been a pass, but anyway. The exam change I don't believe will grandfather anyone in; the changed exam is the changed exam. Having said that, since the PMP v5 exam content is so fresh in your mind, you would want to study more and sit it in the next two weeks or so anyway, while it remains fresh in your mind.

My advice for a retest is 1. make sure you read the PMP exam content outline document to understand all the tasks PMI expect a PM to perform, because I recall some questions that directly used some of these tasks in the answer choices. 2. understand the flow of the 47 processes in PMBOK v5 as there were some questions that definitely needed an understanding of these. 3. if you haven't already, make sure you do a stack of mock exams (reputable mock exams) such as the ones from Fastrack which is part of Rita's book "PMP Exam Prep" series of products, and get around 85% or more consistently.

Good luck Khiry :-)

I tend to agree with Sante but please best contact PMI and they will let you know, in all cases if you can do it before the 28th then do. Good Luck

I think the exam will change 26th regardless of the registration date. By now you have an experience of how exam looks like and know exactly what knowledge area needs improvement. Concentrate on that but don't forget to revise rest of the knowledge areas. Practice more mock and simulated exams and go for it. You already have an advantage of appearing once, utilize that.
Good luck.

To reinforce previous comment and considering your ready.

I would reschedule now to pass the exam before March 26.
Check with PMI

Agree with all of the above responses in stating you should schedule right away to pass prior to the exam changing. I passed my PMP in Dec. 2017.

In taking on-line exams I found it helpful to write down/take screen shots of any questions I was unsure of when answering, or got wrong, as clearly those were items/areas I was not confident/well versed in and needed more work. I simply compiled those into a Word doc. Daily, in addition to taking new practice exams and adding to my reference Word doc of "problem areas", I also reviewed all my previous problem questions already compiled.

Best of luck!

Khiry -

Use the exam analysis report which you can find under myPMI when you log onto pmi.org. This report will show you which specific tasks you were below target on across the five domains which will help you focus your studying efforts.

Good luck!

Some of the changes are editorial, including name changes. The important changes are around project tailoring and using agile approaches. Bonne chance!
